  Bluegrasses, in Latin called Poaceae, are a family of their own within the kingdom of plants. The Rough bluegrass (Poa trivialis) is one of the most common bluegrasses in Central Europe. It flowers in May and June. Ripe seeds can be found in nature between June and August. Since the inflorescence and seeds bend the panicles strongly, it usually looks like in the photo below. The plants can be of up to 90 centimeters (approx. 3 ft) long.
